Next for our one-act ballet, we will a raucous and rambunctious “The Carnival” conceived and choreographed by the directors Donald Dadey and Sibylle Acatos-Dadey, this fun and enjoyable look into a carnival is a must see for all ages!
For the finale to this evening, we present our highlights from “The Sleeping Beauty”, this year for the upper level students and is our representation one of the true classics. The best excepts from this ballet have been exquisitely re-staged by Sibylle Acatos-Dadey. In addition to these wonderful ballets we are delighted to feature choreography from our wonderful faculty with Julia Chacon’s, Flamenco, and Cody Pickens, Contemporary Dance.
Directors Sibylle Acatos-Dadey and Donald Dadey experienced international careers and worked with some of the greatest names in ballet, George Balanchine, Rudolf Nureyev, William Forsythe, Hans Van Manen and many others. It is with this rich heritage that they continue to present some of the finest ballet performances in Phoenix and Scottsdale.
